We have stopped being good boys and playing by the rules how much ever possible without resulting in sanctions and ensuing damage to economy and dhandho.

If we played by (((rules))), we wouldn't buy S400, we wouldn't get the 10 year chabahar port deal and we wouldn't be importing oil from Russkie.

The rule enforcers also don't want to push us too hard lest they make another enemies in times where they have few real allies
the biggest rule break to america is non dollar trade i think india has assured they will not
completely de dollarize?

Global ’Think Tanks’, sing the tune of whosoever pays them. These institutions whether located in America or Britain have the same master. These are opinion maker and advance their own national policy. Although the appearance is of honesty but honesty is limited to whatever they are looking for. Interestingly, to supplement their own flimsy research work, they will hire consultants either supporting their view point or supplement their own view point.

In case of India, the view point in the State Department has been molded by a bunch of Washington/New York consultants. They are blinded by India’s purchase of cheap oil from Russia hence in addition to whatever the State Department politicians already wish to do is supplemented by these consultants. All the advisors they hire for a particular job are eminent in their field but are politically opposed to India emerging as a power in South Asia. Hence, all the advice they tender is anti India.

That is the State of affair in the U.S. State Department. It is anti-Indian now. We will have to wait until the November US elections when the Democrats most likely will loose and the department will be purged of these elements.
Much of USA's India policy is influenced by UK and has been for decades.

@Blademaster @Varoon2 or anyone familiar with U.S university systems.

is it possible to roughly calculate value of economy of anti-India academic propaganda in terms of salaries , departmental funding , tution fees etc, academics promoting anti-India themes would be drawing from murican universities?

say there are 300 such academics + 300 teaching assistants + departmental grants + tution fees of 5000 students , or whatever might be the appropriate proportion might be, how much would this economy be?

assuming berkely, UCLA, stanford, harvard, georgetown etc will have financial details publicly available, for estimates.
Have you checked the corpus of these universities ? That's where their secret sauce lies. Tuition fees , grants etc are a drop in the ocean for them.

The irony is a good number of India Inc have created a corpus with some of the most prestigious universities there & it's a pretty decent sum too . That's the reason Rajiv Malhotra breaks out into one of usual rants every now & then online.

The only silver lining is , after years of petitioning Murty Classical Library by local & foreign born Indologists of desi extraction who held alternative PoV from the establishment , they finally did away with the editor of the series who was your usual Gora Indologist with the same pet ideas & ideologies about what ought to constitute Indology.

Everyone is absolutely terrified”: Inside a US ally’s secret war on its American critics - "I met Raqib" Naik

An American charity leader who spoke out on Indian human rights violations saw his Indian employees arrested en masse. An American journalist who worked on a documentary about India was put on a travel blacklist and deported. An American historian who studies 17th-century India received so many death threats that she could no longer speak without security. Even a member of Congress — and vocal critic of the Modi regime — said she was concerned about being banned from visiting her Indian parents.

Chinese money flow into US universities for producing anti-India academic propaganda can't be ruled out. They have the capability and are most likely doing it.

rough estimates from google.

university endowments market value- 850 billion $
govt university funding - 120 billion $
private philanthropy - 500 billion $
total revenue of degree granting institutions - 1 trillion $


the system is well funded, what i wanted to find out is how much India bashing wallahs are making out of this. i am just hoping, they are not selling India for cheap in millions, it better be in billions :troll:
